The agent for Scott Fujita had no comment on a report that the Cleveland Browns linebacker has a possible career-ending neck injury.
ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported that both the Browns and Fujita fear his playing days could be over.
Agent Don Yee would not confirm the report. Fujita, who has spent the past seven months trying to clear his name after being accused of taking part in the Saints' bounty scandal, was inactive for Sunday's game against Cincinnati.
The 33-year-old showed up on the Browns' injury report last week, when he sharply criticized NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell's handling of the New Orleans situation. Fujita's three-game suspension was reduced to one by Goodell.
Fujita did not immediately return texts messages or emails seeking comment.
Fujita spent four seasons with New Orleans before signing as a free agent with Cleveland in 2010.

With the sale of the Browns to Jimmy Haslam officially sealed and done, it didn't take long for Adam Schefter to report that Mike Holmgren will retire as the Browns' president.

Apparently there are repercussions for utter failure and disgraceful performance. And I guess new Browns owner has seen enough by looking over the Browns' roster and their play over the last 2-1/2 years, becuase Jimmy Haslem's first act as new owner today seems to be giving Browns team president the boot.
